GHHS relies almost entirely upon volunteers, and we’re always looking for kind-hearted and responsible people to help us in our mission.
Volunteers can fill a variety of roles, such as guest escorts, dog walkers, feline socializers, cleaning, and thrift store sorters and pricers. You can volunteer in as many areas as you’d like, or focus on one particular job.
We appreciate each volunteer’s time!
There is not a minimum amount of hours you are required to meet; however we may ask you to return to general orientation if you have not volunteered within the past six months. This ensures volunteers are kept up to date on GHHS procedures. Only those volunteers with ten or more hours in a six-month timeframe will be kept “active”.
By agreeing to volunteer, you understand that GHHS cannot be held responsible for damages of personal property or injuries. This includes but is not limited to animal bites, wear and tear of clothes, vandalism, and all accidents or injuries.
All volunteers under the 19 years of age will be required to provide a parental consent form prior to volunteering.
All volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation prior to being hands-on.
Additional training is required for specific jobs and will be discussed at orientation in detail.
Our youngest volunteers can sign up to read to the animals through our Paws for Reading program. Parental supervision is required.
Our teenage volunteers are welcome to come in and assist with more tasks than ever! Becoming a teenager allows you to start helping with small animal socialization, cleaning duties, and the thrift store (with additional training). Parental supervision is required.
Volunteer on-site and off-site, including dog walking!
